April Owl Finished

Welcome to all my new followers.  It's always a lovely surprise to see new faces, and extra special when I've only just got back from being away for a few days.

Well as promised, here is my Oak Haven April Owl finally finished.

Well, I've just been touring around Norfolk, and the place I've been staying at have mallard ducks with lots and lots of ducklings.  As usual, my camera was with me and here are just some of the photo's I took for you to look at.

Aren't they just so cute!

While I was away, I did do some stitching.  I've been doing a miniature "Celtic Knot" by Textile Heritage.  I've almost finished, I just need to do some backstitching and a few extra stitches.  Unfortunately, the lighting was not good and I could not stitch too long at night.  So watch this space for an update.

Happy Stitching Everyone

Thank you for your comments Lee. It was so good of the chaffinch to be so close, and singing his heart our, that I managed to get a good picture of him.

Love the ducklings photos, Mary Joan! Also the owls are coming along nicely. I joined very late and have only done Feb., but I also joined 3 other SAL's late, so I'm trying to catch up everywhere!

Love the specialty stitches in your header - beautiful!
